Have you heard that Starbucks actually conducts signing workshop, and joining is totally free? In case you didn’t know, Starbucks Malaysia opened the very first Signing Store in Bangsar Village II back in 2016. It was not only the first store in Malaysia but it was also the first store worldwide. It was so inspiring that it led to the plan to open the first US Signing Store in Washington, D.C. coming soon this month.
Starbucks Malaysia’s Signing Workshop is now back for another session! In collaboration with Society of Interpreters for the Deaf (SID), a series of Sign Language classes which comprises of six modules will be conducted at the Starbucks Signing Store, Bangsar Village II, starting from October 2018 onwards until the end of the year.
Members of the Public are welcome to join the workshops at any of the sessions for free. It will also be a great opportunity to get to know the Deaf partners (employees) of Starbucks Malaysia, 9 of them having been certified Baristas.
